I don't know if I'll jump on board because I already have so many of the $20 ones... I'm running out of funds. But hey, we've got our feet wet already, right?
I'd only get this one, since it's the first in the series. Despite it's price, it'll probably sell out fast. Personally, i think this is getting ridiculous. The mint is gettin' greedy.

Yup, getting ridiculous............. the same thing happened with stamps. I have been collecting stamps since I was 9 or 10 years old. Now, with so many commemorative stamps being issued every year, it doesn't make sense. The fun is taken out of it.

I actually prefer the $100 coin to the $20 coin because for one reason - you can rack up on credit cards rewards much quicker.

2% cash back on the the units I just order = free money from credit card company.

Ordered mine too. But damn it, I realized after that I already passed the promo code page and ended up paying for shipping The site was crazy slow so I didn't dare hit back, or risk not getting any.

They pulled the purchase limit of the $100 coin down to 1 per household. Also, you can only order it by phone. Wish I bought 2 more. :P

Good thing since I would have bought 3. Then in 3 months they would have released another one and I would have bought another 3. Before I know it, I would be a MasterClub member

There were 300 bison coins available at the mint store in Vancouver this afternoon and they sold out in 2 hours.

As I was leaving, there were people paying random strangers walking by so they could purchase another three coins.

If it was shipped by Canada Post Xpresspost, it should of came with tracking and signature confirmation in a cardboard box.

The mailman should not have left it on your door steps.



15 more on the way

Got mine in the mail the other day but no tracking number. At least it wasn't let in front of my door, I had a notice to pick up the package from my nearest postal pick-up location.

New 20 for 20 Coin out!! also, a subscription for the next one!

Iceberg Coin:
http://www.mint.ca/store/coin/20-for...mBrowseAll=yes

Iceberg Coin + Santa Coin Subscription:
http://www.mint.ca/store/coin/20-for...s#.UdMzJm2lcpA


EDIT: hm... Not sure if I'm reading this correctly, but if you pay $20 for the subscription, you're buying the iceberg coin too? So... Don't buy Iceberg coin AND the subscription. Just get the sub if you want both... I think.

Not taking a chance of not getting them, so paid the shipping and tax on shipping. $3.35, not a big deal. I have all of them so far. Didn't want combo breaker..........
